Actress Diana Penty, who was seen on the silver screen in Happy Bhag Jayegi after a gap of four years, says she has no regrets of taking a sabbatical in her career. After her modelling stint, Diana ventured into tinsel town with “Cocktail” in 2012. But she maintained her distance from the big screen after her the blockbuster debut.
“Somehow I never felt like there was a dull moment… I actually have no regrets and very happy that I waited this long. I am very glad that ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ came my way,” Diana told IANS over phone from Mumbai. The 30-year-old says she was never idle during the four years as she kept herself busy.
“I managed to keep myself busy with my hobbies, doing things I liked, travelling. I was working as well… Along side all of these things, I also actively met people and used to read stuff hoping to find my next film,” she added.
Diana Penty is more than happy for her Cocktail co-star Deepika Padukone for her “great achievement” of making her Hollywood debut with the film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Diana, who ventured into Bollywood in 2012 with Cocktail starring alongside Deepika and Saif Ali Khan, says she is proud of the Bajirao Mastani star.
“It is a great achievement. We all are so proud of her. It is an amazing achievement. She has managed to put Bollywood on the map along with Priyanka Chopra,” Diana, whose film Happy Bhaag Jayegi released earlier this month, told IANS. In xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Deepika shares screen space with Hollywood star Vin Diesel.
